A 2014 photo of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o has resurfaced and it’s sparked the idea for a screenplay!
The image was captured at the 2014 Miu Miu fashion show in Paris. The “Work” singer wore a colourful, glamorous ensemble while “The Jungle book” actress dressed chic and sharp.
An imaginative user on Twitter saw the image and thought, “Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scams.” And the internet took it from there.
One talented fan drew art depicting a scene for the action-heist flick and even wrote up some dialogue!
And “Whiplash” producer Helen Estabrook offered to help produce the flick.
The tweet blew up and elicited responses from both Rihanna and Nyong’o. “I’m down if you are,” the upcoming “Black Panther” star asked Rihanna. “I’m in…” the multi-time Grammy winner replied.
